In just 419 days since shipping, the Dell EMC Unity family of All-Flash and hybrid flash storage arrays, the company has achieved $1-billion in cumulative bookings.
Dell EMC Unity delivers All-Flash and hybrid storage performance and simplicity for the midrange with integrated support for block and file data.
Since May 2016, nearly 6 000 customers have selected Dell EMC Unity to address block and file storage workloads such as databases, file systems, server virtual machines and virtual desktop infrastructures.
“In just over a year since it was introduced, customer adoption of Dell EMC Unity has picked up incredible momentum, becoming one of the fastest-growing storage array families in company history,” says Jeff Boudreau, president of storage at Dell EMC. “Designed for All-Flash performance and cloud-like simplicity, Dell EMC Unity has taken the midrange storage segment by storm and is helping thousands of SMEs and enterprises modernise their data centres.”
At Dell EMC World 2017 in Las Vegas, Dell EMC introduced four new Dell EMC Unity All-Flash models – Dell EMC Unity 350F, 450F, 550F and 650F – providing up to 500TB of effective storage capacity per single U, and the introduction of a highly dense 80-drive, 3U footprint.
